These Photos Reveal How Your Parents Did Spring Break In The ’80s

======= ======= ====== ====== ====== ===== ==== ====== ====== ===== ==== ======= ======= ====== ====== ====== ===== ==== ====== ====== ===== ====

Snapshots of the ’80s, the decade many believe to be the fraternity culture golden era, are always fun to see. The shorts were shorter, the hair was bigger, the cocaine was cocainier, and the public displays of indecency were committed freely and without the worry that they might end up on Twitter. And if you were able to grow a ‘stache, you grew one.

Documentary photographer W. Keith McManus captured Daytona Beach spring breaks in the 1980s, which he displays on his website. I chose some of my favorites below, but be sure to view the rest of the photo gallery and the other work on his website,
